just a quick comment/question brought up by the latest doctor who episode - is anyone else finding S8 visually confusing?
a concrete example from the last episode: at one point the gang is fleeing from the guards through the air ducts of the bank. they leave the corridor and enter a room. now, in-between the scenes, there’s this super flashy zoom-in kind of transition followed by a shift in lighting. to me this implies that there’s been something cut between the scenes - a jump in time or, based on the shift in lighting (considering it’s a sci-fi show) even some kind of transportation. but no. they literally just moved from room A to room B. so why pick a transition that draws attention when there’s nothing to draw attention to?
it’s not what i’d call lazy cinematography - more like the opposite, it’s overexcited about all the editing possibilities without stopping to consider if they’re actually necessary from a storytelling perspective.
